, who was courting gun owners in his very pro-second amendment state of nevada, in a tough battle for re-election. >> i also want to thank you, senator, for your support every day at the federal level for the second amendment, and for the rights of american gun owners. >> both reid and the nra declined to talk to cnn on camera, but democratic sources on capitol hill say the nra was not the only threat to the president's health care bill. lawmakers were also worried about conspiracy theories, circulating among gun enthusiasts that falsely accused the obama administration of plotting to use the health care law to go after gun owners. one group, gun owners of america, insists it could still happen. >> it says that all of our medical records are available to be pawed through by bureaucrats somewhere in washington, looking for a reason to disenfranchise gun owners. >> the senate majority leader's views on gun control are changing. he's in a different place than he was in 2010, says an adviser. consider how reid answered the question after the july movie theater massacre in colorado. >> with the schedu

will encourage elected officials to prevent gun violence and communicate directly with the constituents. very strong language and an op-ed in the u"usa today" she goes after the gun lobby saying special interests purporting to represent gun owners but really advancing the interests of an ideological fringe have used big money and influence to cow congress into submission, rather than working to find the balance between our rights and the regulation of a dangerous product. she goes on to say these groups have cast simple protections for our communities as existential threats to individual liberties. also speaking to abc news, a couple of comments we saw on "good morning america" this morning, let's listen to one of them here. >> okay. >> i have a gun. gabby and i are both gun owners. we are strong supporters of the second amendment, but we've got to do something to keep the guns from getting into the wrong hands. >> when it can happen to children in a classroom, it's time to say -- >> enough. >> so there's the timing, there's their personal experience, all of that coming to bear now as they ta
after the elections next year? >> i want us to remember why we went to afghanistan. we went into afghanistan because 3,000 americans were viciously murdered by a terrorist organization that was operating openly and at the invitation of those who were then ruling afghanistan. it was absolutely the right thing to do for us to go after that organization, to go after the host government that had aided and abetted or at least allowed for these attacks to take place. and because of the heroic work of our men and women in uniform, and because of the cooperation and sacrifices of afghans who had also been brutalized by that then host government. we achieved our central goal, which is -- or have come very close to achieving our stroll go central goal, which is to decapacitate al qaeda. to dismantle them. to make sure they can't attack us again. and everything that we have done over the last ten years, from the perspective of the u.s. national security interests, have been focused on that aim. and, you know, at the end of this conflict, we are going to be able to say that the sacrific
and in that race, gun owners made a six-point difference and this that case, we did a poll after the election, and they said that 45% were willing to vote for it. so guns are more acceptable now than they were ten years ago. >> one of the big questions here is who does the nra represent and you do take millions of dollars from people who make gun, and people who make bullet s and all perfectly legal and fine folks. >> well, actually, we get less money from the industry than we would like to get. >> but you get millions of dollars from them. >> so less than we used to. >> so that the criticism out there that the nra and some other gun supporter groups gin up this, that they are going to come take your guns away, because what happens is that the gun sales rise and people go t out, and you know, sort of frighten people into thinking that the guns are going away when in fact members who are sort of friendly to you all who have a-ratings say we have to look at the assault weapons ban and the accusation is that you are ginning up this conversation, because it helps gun sales. >> the two people se
with obsession of budgets and elections, 2013 is shaping up a little different. our leaders may actually do something to reign in gun violence. we don't know if this momentum will last, if congress will actually act. there's been a lot of talk of an executive order. this time at least feels different. this week, vice president biden held a series of task force meetings with various stakeholders in the gun debate, delivering a set of recommendations to the president based on that input as soon as tuesday. >> there's got to be some common ground here to not solve every problem, but diminish the probability that what we've seen in these mass shootings would occur and diminish the probability that children are at risk in their schools. >> these meetings weren't just some photo-op. even the nra attended. after the meetings, it trashed the agenda as an attack on the second amendment. walmart, probably the biggest gun seller, was shamed, i guess, into showing up. retailer originally said executives couldn't attend. they had scheduling difficult s difficulties. ative course of criticism, they chan
explains why we still don't have a budget and how our elected officials have bungled a basic business process most of us handle with ease. a must see. "your money" starts right now. jo america's road to economic recovery is wide open, right in front of us, if our elected officials don't put major blocks in your way. i'm ali velshi. debt ceilings, budgets and spending cuts are all you'll hear coming out of washington for the next few months. the partisan warfare in washington could put a dent in any recovery. the threat is real. the next battle will be another clash over raising the u.s. debt ceiling. the current ceiling was officially hit on december 31st, but like last time the u.s. treasury is using extraordinary measures to get through about late february or early march. if congress doesn't act by then, the government risks not being able to pay some of its bills. republicans seem to think the debt ceiling is a useful tool to limit how much the government spends, but that is not what the debt ceiling law is supposed to do. it gives the u.s. treasury the flexibility to borrow money
that is a very important question. or take, for example, something we talked about a lot during the election. that is private equity managers and many hedge funds managers who can treat their income as capital gains, and even the new deal -- >> bob, here is the problem with what you're saying -- >> steve, you'll agree with me on this, i'm sure. >> here is the problem, we agree we should get rid of all of these loopholes. this is interesting, erin, that when mitt romney talked about this in the campaign of putting a cap on these deductions, it was the democrats, people like robert reich, maybe not you personally, but people of your philosophy who said we can't do that. here's the point -- >> we actually do believe -- >> what? >> i don't know why democrats aren't in favor of putting a cap on those deductions. i'm saying if we're going to get something done on this, erin, what is going to have to happen is democrats are going to have to agree to reduce the tax rates in exchange for getting rid of the loopholes. >> or we're going to have to raise taxes on everyone, as npr ran the numbers. if you
. what i'm concerned about and have been concerned about, since even well before the elections is having seen the president rule by executive order where he has no authority in other areas, i can see that he would just go ahead -- and the vice president has hinted at an executive order that moves toward their gun cone troll agenda. that, i think changes the game and throws into question how legitimate the federal government is. and i would advise mr. obama to consider what happened to george the third when he was doing similar things against the american colonists >> he hasn't banned the importation of ball and powder yet. that was one of the contributing elements to our war for independence. and george the third as you probably know, was so stressed by the loss of his famous favorite colony that he ended his days in a nut house, and i wouldn't wish that on anybody. >> when i talk to you mr. pratt, i always look for some sense of humanity that you could react to the sandy hook massacre in the way that i do and many other people did. and i never see it from you. all i see is a very determ
at the same time, address safe gun legislation and immigration. that's what they were elected to do. >> because i know that at the news conference the president will open up with a statement on the deficit and raidsing the nation's debt ceiling, but you know the reporters are going to ask questions on those two issues that you just raised. let's just quickly talk about both of these. you're here in washington to talk about the -- you may well remember president obama trieded it, he had ted kennedy on his side, he had mccain on his side, it didn't go anywhere. what do you think if the president tries to push for comprehensive immigration reform including a pathway to citizenship for so many of the ten, 10 million illegal immigrations from -- >> they lost about 71% of the latino vote, 74% of the asian vote. the vast majority of people in the country in poll after poll after poll including your own say that people want comprehensive immigration reform that provides a pathway for citizenship. i saw john mccain yesterday on face the nation and i can tell you that we were in the room toge
, for just the eighth time in history no one was elected to the national baseball hall of fame this year. the baseball writers association said no to barry bonds, to roger clemons, to mark maguire and to sammy sosa. those are some of the biggest names in history but all allegedly cheated by using enhancement performing drugs. earlier pete rose, himself ban from the hall of fame for gambling, his thoughts on the shutout and the odds of him being elected. >> with the odds of the guys you mentioned, besides clemons because he was a pitcher, how about babe ruth, etc., who lost their record because of the suspicion of steroids. i have to defend roger clemons in this and the reason i have to defend him is because till this day he says he didn't take steroids and he's never flunked a drug test and he went in front of two different courts and they both ruled in favor of him. so who am i to sit here and say that roger clemons took steroids because he won some games after he was 40 years old. bonds admitted he put the steroids on him. sosa flunked the test. let's talk about bigio, piazza, jack mor
in a presidential election cycle, we lost. not only conservatives but moderates as well. i think we need to go back to a that message of fiscal responsibility. the american people want fiscal responsibility. they want washington to live within their means just like small businesses and american families and organizations have to every single day. that's our message that wins. we are still here. >> i have something you said to me a year ago on a plane. your comment about the tea party being in disarray. as you are well aware in 2010, you seemed at least from who you supported to be a little bit different. joe miller of ab alaska, i tota have a man crush on this dude. you said, we did exactly what we set out to do, crush the establishment-backed gop candidate. are you being a little bit of a fair weather friend? it is all right if you are. i am just wondering. >> it is interesting how the media lies to portray these situations. i'm a big supporter of the tea party. i think given the finances and situations, there are a lot of people on the outside who it is time for them to come to the inside. they
spring, they took to the streets, toppled the long-time leader, and paved the way for elections. the leader is a long-time muslim brotherhood leader, who is president. he has been accused of steering egypt back towards a dictatorship. i had exclusives questions for the president. during the lengthy interview with the egyptian president, mohamed morsi, i raised the case of three prominent egyptians who sharply criticized morsi, the nobel prize prize winner. the former head of the arab league. and egypt's top television satirist, the so-called jon stewart of egypt, who has made a lot of fun of morsi. their cases underscore the thought that they could destroy the promise of real democracy and freedom. that raises real concerns, what is going on in egypt? democracy in egypt and freedom are abided by, and opposition in egypt is respected and appreciated. for those to express their opinions in egypt now and in the future, and to be a true partner in opinion and vision. effective criticism, and constructive criticism. all of this is a right guaranteed for opposition in egypt. there are
through this election and now here we are a year later, "politico" reporting that the tea party is struggling for money and asking all kinds of groups it hasn't always considered to be a friend. american majority, club for growth and the koch brothers, asking all of them for money. is the tea party going to have to compromise its principles in order to survive? >> no, erin, i don't think we are going to have to compromise our principles. look, if you look back to 2010 when the tea party movement drove the messaging, we won, we had huge victories across the country. when you look at 2012 and the republican party driving the messaging in a presidential election cycle, we lost, not only conservatives but moderates, as well. so i think we need to go back to that message of fiscal responsibility. because the american people want fiscal responsibility. they want washington to live within their means just like small businesses that american families and organizations have to every single day. and so i think that's our message that wins. and we're still here, we're not going anywhere. >
are trying to unseat him. >> this is not an election year for the senate this is an election year for governor. >> people who love him and support him should stop loving and support you when you run for his seat. >> i have a deep respect and love for him. he has given a long degree of service. we should all respect that, and, look this is a loyon of our senate and i'll give him that space. this isn't an election year. fiscal cliff, the sandy aid, debt ceiling, a lot of issues we need him in the saddle, focused in the job, not focused as mayor of the city of newark. >> you always get these blowing, rave, wonderful articles. "the new york times," not nice at all, they say are you a better marketer than mayor. is it hurtful? >> probably one of the more frustrating articles of my career. they glossed over what we have done, since instituting court reform, prisoner entry reform, doubled the amount of affordable housing to dealing with veterans issues. a frustrating article. but as you said, sometimes you won't get flowing press. the press sometimes likes to build you up and take you do
in the 2012 laerksz the republican party is now searching for a way to recover and beyond the election loss, there's house speaker john boehner, he's had his own problems lose ageffort to get support from his colleagues for a last ditch fiscal cliff measure. another story the tea party wing in the gop still has influence. and that sometimes causes major divisions. so is it time for the party to change? does it need to become a big tent? rich galen joins us from washington, a republican strategist. rich, i guess you could say the gop has its own bad case of the flu. what's the cure here? >> part of it is is just as with the flu for most people, wait it out. take plenty of water, go to bed and wait till you feel better. that's part of what's going to have to happen here. these things in washington tend to be cyclical. in terms of what the republicans in the house are going through, it's useful to remember, when i first came back to washington in 1996, i talked to a friend. i was working for newt gingrich. i was talking to a friend who worked for tip o'neill. i said how did tip spend his day?
in future elections to the hall of fame. >>> let's take a quick look at the big board here. we have the dow before the "closing bell" in a matter of seconds. up 61 points. right at 13,390 for the day. you can always follow me on @brookeb. got to be with you. now to wolf blitzer in washington. wolf? >>> brooks, thanks very much. happening now -- >> when we hit the dock, everybody went flying. >> all of a sudden we just hit. boom. and people were catapulted forward. >> the search for answers as to why a packed ferry boat didn't stop in time, crashing into a dock and injuring dozens of new york city commuters. >>> also, vice president joe biden hears from the victims of gun violence. still to come, the nation's biggest gun seller and the nra. >>> plus, from my visit to egypt, the writing on the wall, the graphite in tahrir square tells the story of a revolution that many fear is going wrong. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." we begin right here in washington with important news. the vice president joe biden met with victims of gun violence and gun safety advocates. they spent s
elected in our states of utah and west virginia and we became friends, democrat and republican, looking to solve problems. i thought the same would carry over when i got to washington. first of all you have to understand the dynamics of what we're dealing with. as a senator we have -- since i've been there in two years, there has not been a bipartisan caucus where we sit down to talk with our republican colleagues on the other side, unless we do it behind what you see on the day-to-day basis. even think about taking it further, we don't even know our colleagues in congress, the 435. so, this gives a us chance, and no labels gives us a venue to sit down and have meaningful conversation. >> but, you know, to have to do this seems like, you could tell 100 grown men and women, you guys need to talk to each other. >> right. but did you hear what joe just said? i mean can you believe there's not even a venue that allows people to come together to solve problems? the premise is a simple one. joe and i come from a background of problem solving as governors and when you see the dysfunction of co
that president car are sooi stole the last election. just have a listen. >> correctly seen as illegitimate as many afghans and by people around the world. he runs a corrupt regime. his vice president according to these documents had $53 million in cash going to dubai. there is no legitimate explanation for the vice president of a country running off with $53 million. another of these documents appointments out that his half brother is involved in the drug trade. and then there are of course the accounts of karzai himself as being emotional, unstable, suggestions that he uses drugs. >> a lot of allegations there, but i think to the point is whether president karzai can be trusted in a way to run his own country or is he the only game in town, and regardless of troop numbers, there will be billions of dollars needed to run the army that is now being built up by the u.s. and nato. >> that's right. at the nato conference, they pledged to at least ten years of providing beginning $4.1 billion a year, $2.5 billion of that coming from the u.s. but i think it's important for us to recognize as we
that was done back in july of last year before the election. it's about how the president of israel largely symbolic position, adamantly opposed an israeli strike because he said, i guarantee you, if it comes to it, the americans are going to do it. so, a lot of the israeli calculation back in september and october when they were thinking about a strike was, no, let's hold off because we have some confidence that the obama administration, if it comes to it, we'll do it. if it's necessary. a lot of the people who supported president obama said, "mark my words. he is a man of his word, he does this quite seriously." then he turns around and appoints perhaps the most prominent skeptic of any kind of military intervention in iran as his defense secretary. if you're sitting in israel, you're wondering just how reliable is the united states and maybe we should go it alone. so, for that reason alone, simply the appointment of chuck hagel is going to make the israelis more skittish and perhaps more prone to act. >> here's the irony. who said that military action against iran could prove catastrophi
. they recognize there's a gubernatorial election coming up. i think what sweeney should be doing is saying who is going to be the democratic candidate and how can we create a message in our state, forget national shows. in our state to go chris christie. otherwise, it's sour grapes, so stop wasting your time complaining about praying for a storm. find a candidate first, then get a message. >> this raises a really interesting point though, which is that the whole country assumes chris christie is going to run and he's very popular right now. and then when you actually run, people start throwing at you. they did with mitt romney, about his taxes, about the education rank of massachusetts. there were all kinds of things. things like having an unemployment rate 2% higher, that could change. or you could look at these statistics and they could change how you think about how he will do in a republican primary. >> the big thing is that chris christie has this profile where he's saying i'm a problem solver, a bipartisan guy. i get things done, but the thing is that there are two big democratic party b
that conversation and despite the election results, the position that's been taken on the part of some house republicans is that, no, we've got to do it our way. and if we don't, we simply won't pay america's bills. well, that can't be a position that is sustainable over time. it's not one that's good for the economy now. it's certainly not going to be the kind of precedent that i want to establish, not just for my presidency, but for future presidents. even if it was on the other side. democrats don't like voting for the debt ceiling when a republican's president. and yet, you, but you never saw a situation in which democrats suggested somehow that we would go ahead and default if we didn't get 100% of our way. that's just not how it's supposed to work. john carl? >> thank you, mr. president. on the issue of guns, given how difficult it will be, some would say, impossible, to get any gun control measure passed through this congress, what are you willing or able to do using the powers of your presidency to act without congress? and i'd also like to know, what do you make of these long lines
losing the election to president obama. conservative base of the republican party is not happy with this initial deal on the fiscal cliff. so they're looking for republicans to plant flags. now taxes and spending has nothing to do with chuck hagel except for gloria's point about a downsizing at the pentagon. chuck hagel has been on the record saying it's too bloated. while it's not connected to some of the other games of political chess in washington, in some ways everything is connected. >> the white house makes the calculation that if republicans are going to oppose chuck hagel because he ended up being opposed to the war in iraq, that's a fight the white house is happy to have. more than half of the public is opposed -- was opposed to the war in iraq, too, in the end. this is something that they feel they can do. they wouldn't have nominated him, wolf, if they didn't think he would get confirm but it's a political fight that they shouldn't shy away from. >> i'll bring jim acosta in this conversation in a moment. brianna keilar is standing over at the white house. john, despi
was ron barber, gifford's aide. he was elected to fill her seat on capitol hill and is kind enough to join us by telephone now. thanks so much for being with us today. i really appreciate this. could you lay out more for me about this new initiative? >> good morning. i'm sorry. i wasn't able to hear you well. could you say that again? >> sure, congressman barber, give me a few more fuller details about gabby giffords and her husband's news initiative they are laying out today? >> from what i understand, their goal is to engage the country in a reasonable and rational conversation about gun violence and how it might be prevented in the future. and also to do what they can do raise public awareness about the issue. so i welcome what they're doing. i think it's important that we have more and more people involved. i've seen a groundswell of interest in this issue, particularly since the shootings in connecticut. it affected all of us deeply certainly affected me as a grandparent, and seeing behind them my grandchildren's faces. to me it's important that we finally move from talking about the
who come out in midterm elections because midterm elections, unlike presidential elections, you tend to get people from the far right and the far left who come out and vote. and so these democrats have to decide whether those gun owners would be with them on a certain number of issues so they could still get re-elected and still do some kind of gun control, wolf. >> and remember the price they paid for this during the clinton administration. >> right. they do want to do gun control but they have to find out what is realistic and what's not and that assault weapons ban is right there smack in the middle of everything. >> thanks very much, gloria. >>> more than half a million people are fleeing syria's civil war and now winter is compounding the misery for many refugees. >>> plus, details from this spectacular winter phenomena. impact life expectancy in the u.s., real estate in hong kong, and the optics industry in germany? at t. rowe price, we understand the connections of a complex, global economy. it's just one reason over 75% of our mutual funds beat their 10-year lipper average. t
' voting decisions, trying to tell them they're going to lose their elections. interestingly enough, in 2008, more recently in 2012, the nra did very poorly in terms of getting their candidates elected. we have got to do what's right for the american people. we shouldn't have a situation where people are afraid to go to a movie, to go -- to take their kids to school, to just carry on their lives without fear that there is going to be a gunman there spraying an assault weapon at them. so we have to take some steps. the fact that our background check does not even address 40% of the guns that are purchased in this country a year is just unexplainable. we have got to take steps to make sure we close those loopholes, make sure the dealers, in fact, aren't selling guns, that become crime guns. and that if they do, that they have to pay penalties. >> i know many of the american people are awaiting the details from this proposals that should be coming out later this week. we should hear from the president. congressman speier, thank you. >> my pleasure. >>> up next, my red carpet chats with
pitcher of his generation and a seven-time cy young award winner, that's clemens, would be elected to the fhall of fame. however, now because of the cloud of p.e.d. use, performance enhancing drugs, i'm afraid the announcement will land with a thud. not only do i not expect them to get 75% of the vote, the amount that's necessary, i don't think we'll even reach 50%. >> just for the record, rafael palmeiro is the only one on the ballot who failed a drug test, who failed a steroid test. so why not put barry bonds and roger clemens in? i mean, barry bonds, what, was convicted of obstruction of justice. roger clemens, he went through this big, long trial. nothing happened. so why not vote them in? i mean, what justification will sports writers have for not allowing them into the hall? >> these are very complicated times. sports writers will tell you that anyone who has even had a hint of linkage with performance enhancing drug use will not be on their ballots, okay? of course, this is an era in which we don't exactly know which players might have used performance enhancing drugs or mig
election which republicans took control of the congress. and democrats are still spooked by the fact that in a lot of red and purple districts, wolf, they lost because of the crime bill. you remember the crime bill with bill clinton, included in the crime bill was the ban on assault weapons. and so for the last two decades, the democrats have been very reluctant to touch this issue because they know it's going to hurt them, particularly with gun owners who can be very intense and very motivated to come out to vote in midterm elections in particular which we're heading into. >> but public opinion may be evolving now. i'll put up on the screen, a recent poll that we took after the newtown, connecticut massacre. restrictions on guns, 13% say there should be no restricts. 70% say there should be some restrictions. 15% said make all guns illegal. 70% some restrictions which presumably is what the president is going to be calling for seems to suggest this is the time to do something. >> it does. you look at the aggregate numbers. if you're a politician you say, that's great. let's change t
election like he did. you don't want to have to constantly pick the political choice. you want the person you think can get the job done. chuck hagel is not afraid to slash defense budgets. you really need a veteran to do that. the first secretary of defense a v vietnam war veteran. hagel's ready to do it. it's hard to find somebody that has moxie that wants to get in there and slash. he's with his come padres right now, the president. and you can't blame him. fdr's brain trust or the kitchen cabinet of tr, it's always good to have people around you that you're comfortable with. >> douglas, good to talk to you as always. thanks for joining us. douglas brinkley, presidential historian. >>> chris christie, a name that voters love. why his skyrocketing approval ratings and controversial leadership style make him one to watch.dulc ax can cause cramps. but phillips' caplets don't. they have magnesium. for effective relief of occasional constipation. thanks.

. this is not the normal way forward. this represents a broken system. >> if we quit thinking about the next election and start thinking about the next generation, we're going to make it through our lives just fine. it's what we're living behind. and they're going to have to come together sooner or later. >> there you heard it. it's the short term thinking creating potentially huge long-term costs for the american economy. >> the down grading of the u.s. economy was a huge problem. of course, it hasn't yet resulted in higher interest rates. a lot of people might say, look, who cares? let's be complacent. let's not worry about another downgrade. who cares? do people get it, in washington, that's it's important? >> it almost seems to be an afterthought in all of the chest thumping and bargaining, no one is thinking about it because the short-term impact of a default would be extraordinary. maybe we shouldn't call this the debt ceiling at all. maybe we should change it the do downgrade ceiling because this game of chicken is sick. >> sometimes semantics can make all the difference. >> "outfront" next, a
, instead of just cowering afraid of losing the next election, we would have changes in gun laws like we need. we would have, like what you suggest, for example, like closing the loopholes for gun shows. we would have more regulation. i think we need more discussion, not less. and we need to see probably more of the extremists, because that's what's frightening. and the idea that he might have a gun in his hand is terrifying. >> he owns 50 guns, which i found part of the most scary thing. abby, your father ran for president and you know the system in washington better for many. the reason i ask you, i read your tweets today, which were pretty doom laden about this. do you have any hope if it does go to congress, they'll pass anything involving gun control legislation? >> i want to point out, it's not even worth mentioning this guy's name. he does not represent america. this is the same guy that said that the u.s. government is involved in oklahoma bombings and 9/11. so it's just, he really lives in the land of wacky. but, all we're asking for is a rational conversation about gun control.
the election. >> i want to be clear, i'm not wedded to every detail of my plan. i'm open to compromise. i'm open to new ideas. i'm committed to solving our fiscal challenges. but i refuse to accept any approach that isn't balanced. >> in a democracy you can only move forward if both sides albeit having very different philosophical views are willing to come together and govern and that's what we've been lacking. without it, i think we're going to be in terrible trouble. >> much more advice to the president on farid za cara's special "mem"memo to the presid" >>> this past week a surprise move in baseball. this year there will be no new faces at the hall of fame. we've got a hall of fame voter to run all that down for you. >>> well, baseball hall of fame voters pitched a shutout this week electing no one to join the elite in cooperstown. first time since 1996. a lot of new names on the ballot from the so-called steroids era. like barry bonds, mark maguire who broke some of the league's greatest records and linked to performance-enhancing drugs. terrance moore is here to talk about, a hall of
elected to the congress together, and it's surprising me that he makes a comment like that that is personal. look, we weren't used. we sent valuable messages. are we used by being photographed by north korean students by advancing the internet by saying your nuclear development, your missile tests are not playing well, that you need to engage, that you need to be less isolated, that you need to talk to south korea, you need to talk to china? i don't believe that we were used. and the internet message, for a country that is closed -- >> yeah. >> -- that has no open access, no -- very few cell phones, very little internet, eric schmidt of google was received like a rock star. google is known by almost everybody in that country. they can't use it. but they aspire to it and so when you send a message like that and bring somebody like eric schmidt, it opens up a lot of possibilities, including the government, which received the message of eric schmidt quite well, of open access to the internet. >> i have only a second left here, but i have to ask you about kenneth baye you
.m. on the oprah win friday network. other sports news for the eighth time in history, no one was elected to the national baseball hall of fame this year. the baseball writers association said no to barry bonds, roger clemens, mark mcgwire and sammy so sosa. those are some of the biggest names in baseball history, but all allegedly cheated by using performance enhancing drugs. earlier, don lemon asked former cincinnati reds superstar pete rose, himself banned from the hall of fame for gambling. his thoughts on the hall of fame shutout, and the odds that one day he might be inducted. >> as far as the guys you mentioned, with the exception of clemmens, because he's a pitcher, wouldn't it be nice if you could interview babe ruth? roger maris, hank aaron? those are the guys who lost their records because of the suspension of steroids, not -- i don't know if i'll get in trouble for this, i have to defend roger clemmens in this. the reason i have to defend him is because until this day, he says he didn't take steroids, and he's never flunked a drug test, and he went in front of two different co
obama is an elected president by the american people. and he grants the will of the american people by working for the interests of the american people and this is the american people's right in their president. i respect him and i value him. he played an effective and important role in the cease-fire in regard s to gaza. he cooperated with us in a big way. i'm still in constant communication with him. when we meet, there will be a chance to talk about cooperation in different areas like scientific research, manufacturing and production, investments and tourism. >> so you plan on coming to the united states, god willing, in the first quarter of this year, between now and the end of march? >> translator: before the end of the first quarter, god willing, i will visit, as you said i will visit, the united states of america, and i will be happy with this visit. >> i asked the egyptian president about the blind egyptian cleric who was convicted here in the united states in connection with the 1993 world trade center bombing. omar abdel-rahman is serving a life sentence in a u.s. prison.
, getting ready for a national election, and the holidays to follow. then sandy hit. sandy was worst storm to strike new jersey in our history. 346,000 homes were damaged or destroyed. nearly 7 million people and over 1,000 schools were without power. 116,000 new jerseyians were evacuated or displaced from their homes. 41,000 families are still displaced from their homes today. sandy may have damaged our homes and our infrastructure, but it did not destroy our spirit. the people of new jersey have come together as never before, across party lines, across ideological lines, across ages, and races, and backgrounds, from all parts of our state, even from out of state, everyone has come together. so today, let me start this address with a set of thanks from me on behalf of the people of this great state. first, i want to thank the brave first responders, the national guard, and emergency management experts from around this state who prepared us for this storm, and kept us safe in its aftermath.

600,000 to 800,000 people coming into the city. you compare that to 2008, 2009, 2008 election, 2009 inauguration, it was almost two million. 1.8. those of us in the business community would love to see two million people in our city. but no, we're not looking anywhere near those numbers. >> and so not as many people expected as last time. but if you think about it, 600,000 to 800,000 is no slouch. and of course, while you need tickets to get up close. right here behind me, out on the mall, it's a free for all. so they certainly expect a lot of people. mart snn. >> i always love looking at the video of the stand-ins for the huge name tags around their anythings. >> do we know if the president or other officials will do run-through or not? >> no. the president spent at least today, he went and watched one of his daughter's basketball games, he won't be doing the sort of practice that we can see. i can tell you that the actual swearing in will be next sunday behind closed doors. we'll get video of it. it's because it's the constitutionally-mandated day of january 20th. the big day, cel
